PIKES PEAK COLLECTION
Our newest collection celebrates America's Mountain located just west of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Standing at 14,115 feet tall Pikes Peak is one of the most popular mountains in the United States and home to one of the most well known races on its infamous highway. However you reach the summit enjoy stunning 360 views looking out over the surrounding range, Garden of the Gods and Pike National Forest.
Our glass prominently features the iconic Pikes Peak Highway stretching for 19 miles up to the summit making it one of the most accessible 14ers in the world. This highway is also home to an amazing race community where racers from all over world have come for over 100 years to race up to the peak.
Pikes Peak is most notably known for its winding mountain highway and the iconic Hill Climb. The legendary race has a rich history dating back to 1916 when the first event was held. The 12.42 mile course holds numerous challenges including over 156 turns on a mountain with rapidly changing weather and thin air. The dynamic of the original hill climb changed in 2011 when the road was fully paved, creating a new challenge for those racing to the summit. The quest to reach the top of the mountain draws racers from across the globe to compete and attempt to set a new record in one of the best and longest running motorsport events in the world.
The wildest run ever up Pikes Peak is held by our friend Ken Block in his amazing Climbkhana video from 2017. More on that soon.
